TEDXISBRBangalore- The Youngest TEDx Event of South india

TEDxISBRBangalore Team

On the 10th of March 2018, the city of Bangalore witnessed its youth brimming at one of the youngest TEDx Event of the country- TEDxISBRBangalore, held at Jagriti Theatre in Whitefield.

The global platform of TED i.e. “Technology, Entertainment and Design” has gained superior outreach in India after the TED Talks India- Nayi Soch being hosted by Shah Rukh Khan off late. TED and TEDx have now become the Medias for sharing great ideas in a community through a simple medium of expression. They provide platforms to ideas that are contributors in nature for a certain segment of the society by people who are usually not that famous but have “IDEAS WORTH SPREADING”.

The young students of ISBR ( International School of Business and Research) in Bangalore conceptualized the whole event with a marvelous theme- Rubik’s- Find Your Right Place with sub-topics- Art, Leadership, Technology, Creativity, Leadership and Youth Expectations. They also mapped their theme to their choice of speakers who came from different walks of life and works. Their speakers included:- Anupam Nair, a Bollywood Singer; Arun Varma, the founder of BBQ Ride India; Deepak Justin, motivational speaker and life coach; Dheeraj Kolla, a Micro Artist; Isaac Kehimkar, the Butterfly Man of India; Pramod Siddagangaiah, the founder of Live Green India; Vahbiz Bharucha, the Former captain of India Women’s Rugby Team and Yathaarth Murthy, a 12 year wonder boy from Bangalore who can sing 215 National Anthems.

The event was also lined up with power packed performers like Sandeep Sharma, a budding vocalist and guitarist from ISBR Business School; Rajashekharan Parameshwaran, the Guinness World Record Holder for creating the world’s largest Edakoodam- the Indian Grandpa of the Rubik’s Cube; Swahaa Band, a Indian classical fusion band and Eliath Fernandes, a violinist, who has been performing since the age of 5. The audience seemed to be very much curious to see this 12 year old kid who could sing a whooping 215 National Anthems because this is no mean feat. And he lived up to their expectations when he coined a new term by saying, “I want to become an “Anthem”-ologist!!!”

The attendees were a curious lot of 100 that included corporate from all over the southern region of the country and students from across various schools and colleges of Bangalore. They were greeted with exciting goodies, energetic volunteers, amazing food and above all a perfect platform for networking.

The event was hosted by a young and electrifying Emcee- Sathvik Shetty who set up the tone for the whole event and entertained the audience wherever required. The event also had pre-recorded TED Videos played of some of the most amazing ideas at the TED platform, which the team felt were in alignment with their theme and speakers line-up.

Overall the event was a great success and the Team TEDxISBRBangalore signed off with the promise of living up to the benchmark that they created in their first event itself.
